Adam Hall Bermuda April 2021To commemorate the 25-year anniversary season, Delmarva Now put together a Top 25 Delmarva Shorebirds of all time, with Adam Hall coming in at number 24.

The Delmarva Now website said, “To commemorate the 25-year anniversary season, Delmarva Now put together a Top 25 Delmarva Shorebirds of all time with help from the team’s former radio broadcaster, Will DeBoer.

In describing Mr Hall, the website said, “Spending time at second base and shortstop, Adam Hall was a South Atlantic League All-Star, appearing in 122 games. In 464 at bats, the international player finished with a .298 batting average and 138 hits — the most of any Shorebird that season.

“Adam Hall is the hardest-working kid I’ve ever seen,” Sweet said. “The kid is just relentless, working on everything. Down in the cages, while guys were eating before pregame, he was going over his charts and would come out and start working on his own.” He also scored 78 runs, tallied 45 RBIs and cleared the fence five times. In the field, he totaled 264 assists and finished with a .950 fielding percentage.

“Hall’s play helped Delmarva to a 48-21 first-half record, advancing the Shorebirds to the postseason for the first time in nearly 15 years. He was named the Minor League Player of the Month in April.

“The infielder knew from a young age he wanted to play baseball professionally, leaving his home in Bermuda at age 12 to move to Canada. He earned a spot on the Junior National Team and committed to Texas A&M before his draft selection.

“The Shorebirds honored Hall and his father, Tyler, at their 2019 Strike Out Cancer Night. Tyler Hall was diagnosed with multiple myeloma and couldn’t always travel to see his son.

“The elder Hall died in March, but the moment the two shared at Perdue Stadium, where Adam caught the first pitch from Tyler, was a moment many would never forget.

“Hall was never the most vocal leader, but had one of the Shorebirds’ best single seasons in recent history.

“He just brings an energy,” said Tyler Horton, the Shorebirds’ public address announcer from 2016-19. “The guy was very quick and brought a little more to the table offensively than people remember. He always seemed to be going and has a hustle for someone so young.”
